a brighter christmas, and get a sense of what it's like to be neighborly. jeff lopez, one of the last u.s. soldiers to return home from iraq, a crew began putting up holiday lights on every corner of his home today. a man in his community donated the decorations and the labor and sergeant lopez says it feels good. he feels appreciated. his wife says the lights will help make it a christmas to be remembered. >>> we matter on this sport scenes, don't we. >> you know, it's a big game when you're there. >> i wouldn't say that. but it did turn out well. >> did you have fun? >> oh, my god, that was huge. >> that was a fun game to watch. everybody noticed the wizards last night. all over the nba. and who do you think will be the key to victory? somebody who maybe isn't even on the team. as news4 at 6:00 continues. >>> time to drag the coats back out of your back seat or wherever you threw them the last couple of days. right now we're at 53 degrees. we'll head down to the 20s and low to mid-30s by tomorrow morning. it's been a little breezy out there. even gusty at times today. but the wind wil
is the author of the bill, republican congressman from south carolina jeff duncan. congressman, well come to the show. >> melissa, thanks for having me. absolutely. thanks for having me. melissa: tell me what the legislation does. >> first off we have to get serious about the fact that iranians and their proxy, hezbollah primarily are in this hemisphere. this legislation will require the department of state to come up with counter strategy working with our neighbors here in hemisphere to protect american interests, posture properly and create policies to counter that threat. we all know the iranians had an assassination attempt that was supposed to happen in this country against the saudi ambassador. that was thwarted by the government. they were using mexican drug cartels coming through our porous border. iranians are here. we've got to get serious about that. >> is that the main concern, is that they're going to cross the border through mexico? or what are the specific concerns that we think that they're down there doing? >> well, we've got interests all over this hem miss fire. working
: next up is jeff in pennsylvania on our line for republicans. jeff, you are on the line with the "washington journal." caller: i am in massachusetts, not pennsylvania. i do not think you will get a compromise from anyone unless we go over the cliff. i am a point of getting a big deal done. i am and republican, but obama won. democrats controlled to search. you have to give them a little bit. we are not going to get anything done. he wants to wait another year and revisit this. he already proposed we wait another year. nothing will get done in the next congress if there is another cliff coming up a year from now. let it go over the cliff. if i were a representative for a senator, i would go home so they go into effect forever. we have some trouble with his innocence. let it go over and let all the serious players in congress get a deal done. when people start playing the best paying a lot more money and moving their defense -- start paying a lot more money and moving their defense contracts, people will pay attention. guest: this is the interesting thing to me about the a
of united states taxpayers' money dropped on the senate next thursd thursday. >> alisyn: he wants to -- jeff sessions is saying the real fiscal cliff deadline should be when the lawmakers return from break, thursday. if the deal is not proposed by then, there won't be enough time to review and ratify it. we can't afford to vote on a deal without thoroughly reading it first. well, is a serial killer on the loose this morning in michigan? there are new concerns being raised because police just made another gruesome discovery in a drain pipe. this is the second time in four months that they've found human remains there. police have now sent the remains to a lab in texas. and the investigators want today determine if the retains matched body parts which belonged to an unidentified female. one of the president's biggest backers on capitol hill, the progress of election day on immigration reform, in a new interview, democratic illinois congressman gutierrez says, quote, it's great that eva longoria is it out there meeting with the president, but maybe meeting some of the immigrant community to pol
.5%. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: george washington famously described the senate as "the saucer that cools the tea," a body designed to soothe "hot" legislation that emerged from the house of representatives. but as congressional correspondent kwame holman reports, some senators have gotten pretty steamed over a proposed change to how their chamber operates. >> holman: a sign of the holiday season-- the u.s. capitol christmas tree arrived in washington on monday. but behind the festive scene outside, there was a partisan war raging inside on the floor of the senate. the combatants-- democratic majority leader harry reid and republican minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> americans believe congress is broken. once again, the only ones who disagree are mitch mcconnell and the republican party. >> i've never said the senate's working fine. i think the senate's been disastrously run for the last two years. >> the american people know, democrats and republicans, that this place isn't working and there needs to be some changes so that we can proceed
's the important thing to understand. what har ray reid and especially younger senators, people like jeff merkley from oregon, are proposing to restore the filibust filibuster. it's a very simple proposal. they it want to bring back the filibuster as it existed in "mr. smith goes to washington." they want it it to be like jimmy stewart where they had to go to the floor and stand on your principles. now, unfortunately, the filibuster is usually used secretly behind closed doors to stop debate to prevent us from even having a vote. that has nothing to do with what americans understand as a filibuster and there is simply no reason to allow the abuses to continue. >> well, it means that if they were to filibuster, they have to go to the floor and do as you say, "mr. smith goes to washington," and talk endlessly until some conclusion. what do the changes mean for democratic bills, you think? >> it could mean a lot, because many of the bills that democrats have proposed have majority support. they can win in the senate. the problem is they can't get to the 6 o votes that would be required to break a fi
trust. >> versus one term tea party type jeff landry. >> we are the conservative candidate in this race, we're out there looking for people who are interested in sending conservative leadership to washington. >> without objection, the gentleman recognized for one minute. >> they are victims of a political version of the game of musical chairs. redistricting forced two sitting congressmen to compete for one seat. neither reached the 50% mark november 6, so state law sends them into a runoff, and that sends third district louisianans to the polls again this week. >> enough is enough. >> they voted identically 92% of the time in more than 1500 recorded votes. now they are locked in a nasty second round election fight. >> if we don't get rid of those people who fail to solve the problems and continue to kick the can down the road we're going to go nowhere in this country. >> the candidates and outside groups spent a combined $6 million so far, the costliest house race in louisiana. >> mr. landry did go negative early. we had to defend our voting record.
